WELCOME

The Committee and Leaders would like to welcome you to the Sunnybank family of scouting. Your child will take away with them great memories of this time of their life and we hope that you will also.

This website has been designed to provide new families with information about the Sunnybank Scout Group and how we operate. If you would like to join the movement or have any further questions please contact us.

SUPPORTED BY

Scouting is a great way to challenge yourself, enjoy the outdoors and develop leadership skills whilst having fun.

Through Scouting you can create great friendships based on trust and respect. As a previous Sunnybank Scout, I am proud to support the Sunnybank Scout Group.

Venturer Scouts

Scouts

Venturer Scouts is for males and females aged 14½ to 17½ who never turn down a good challenge and love to push themselves to their limits.

 

Life as a Venturer Scout

Venturer Scouts never turn down a challenge, in fact, they make their own! Scaling a 30m rock-face or abseiling into caves may frighten most people but Venturer Scouts face the challenge head on and then go white water kayaking! As a Venturer Scout you’ll work in Units with other Venturer Scouts and your Adult Leaders are always available to provide you with advice, encouragement, and support. As a Venturer Scout you’re given the freedom to choose your own activities, depending on your interests, because we know that you’re most motivated to achieve when you’re passionate about what you do.

 

Venturer Scouts Meetings

Sunnybank Venturer Scouts meet 7.00pm to 9.00pm on Thursdays. Venturer Scout Units meet on a regular basis and Venturer Leaders are simply there to provide adult leadership and support; they act as your Scouting mentors. Unit progress is discussed at meetings, along with how each Unit is turning their goals of the Venturer Program into reality. Socialising is a must and strong bonds are formed through teamwork and a common desire to ensure that everyone becomes the best person they can be. If you’re a Venturer Scout your only limits are the ones that you set for yourself.
